Celebrating 25 years at the University of Delaware

Be a part of a multi-disciplinary research community while pursuing the doctorate in: 
Chemistry & Biochemistry;
Biological Sciences; or 
Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.

The Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) predoctoral training program provides an interdisciplinary education to graduate students that will enable them to apply atomistic and mechanistic approaches of chemistry to important biological and biomedically-related problems. Our National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32 predoctoral training program has been on the University of Delaware campus for 25 years and is one of the 25 CBI programs funded nationwide by NIGMS. The University of Delaware’s CBI Grant is #T32-GM133395.

RESILIENCE: “The ability to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens”

NIH Resilience Training Program is being offered to CBI Fellows. To participate, please contact CBI Coordinator at bergwall@udel.edu.

Navigating school, the career exploration process, research environments, and the stress of life can seem overwhelming and lead us to doubt ourselves just when we need confidence the most. The goal of this series is to help you develop the resilience you need to navigate challenging situations in school, work and life. The series will consist of six webinars, each followed by a small group discussion the following week. The webinars will highlight emotional intelligence competencies needed for academic success and for thriving in research and healthcare careers. We will discuss the cultivation of skills to help you realize resilience and identify and deal with obstacles that get in your way. While you may participate in any of the webinars, it is best to participate in the entire series as the material relates and concepts will be developed throughout the series. Participants are expected to watch each of the webinars and journal or reflect upon the resilience tools and strategies presented prior to the small group, confidential discussions in the following week. Participants who attend all six small group meetings and complete the evaluation survey of this pilot program will be awarded a certificate of completion by the NIH.

Be Well,


Dr. Catherine Leimkuhler Grimes
